Subject: Space? Trip?
I'm going to guess that Mr. Bates is an 80's and 90's Dead Head (I'm 60's and early 70's).

What is the purpose of track # 17 "Space"? It's just part of "The Other One". Please refer to side two of Skull & Roses: There is nothing called 'Drums', 'Space', or 'Jam'. Verse one, verse two, chorus, 'space', 'jam' and yes, the drums are all part of one song called The Other One. When you dice a song up into separate tracks you destroy the continuity. Why do so few of the uploaders seem to get this?

Take a few steps back and show us the whole forest. Stop labeling every single tree!

Subject: shame about Cumberland
Although it is a shame about Cumberland (and PITB), I was about to give this show five stars because it is truly one of my favorite Dead eras - the time I became a Dead Head. But that would leave no higher rating for the Anthem & AoxomoxoA (Live/Dead) shows of '68, '69 & 1970. And those were the ultimate Grateful Dead shows.

Subject: Phil it up!!!
Phil's sound was damn fine on this night. Just crisp, clear tones coming in warm waves from his bass. C. Charlie & El Paso are prime examples of his craft. The 1st set is the difference maker for this show.

Subject: What
What the hell is that horrible shrill noise in Cumberland? The right channel sounds like its ripping my speaker apart. Beware. DAng. It's wonderful up until that point. Issues in Cumberland. Haven't gotten past that yet.

Subject: Berkeley Heads, Unite!
I was surprised to not find any reviews on this one yet. I know the Roadtrip Series (vol. 1 no. 3) covers a good chunk of the '71 summer, but this show should not be overlooked as a quality performance. I really enjoyed Brokedown Palace and Me and Bobby Mcgee. The second half of Not Fade Away goes crazy! and track #24 is really a shout out to David Crosby who was celebrating his 30th birthday. Jerry crunches out happy birthday on the geetar. Berkeley Community Theater is something that I have personally only experienced with visiting the Wavy Gravy birthday, Seva benefit celebrations in the 2000's (cut me some slack - I'm from Kansas) but I loved the theater so much that it prompted me to search it out in the Grateful Dead history here on the Internet Archive. This is a fun addition to any collection.
